Metals

The metals industry is facing continual challenges in terms of reducing production cost and improving productivity, safety and quality processes with respect to the environmental impact through resources optimum management.

Our customers require oxygen to enhance productivity, nitrogen as a purge gas, and argon to enhance product quality with high demand. We deliver competitive offers with high availability rates, using the latest technology techniques. We are working closely with the biggest market producers in Egypt.

As a long-term partner to the metals industry (steel, non-ferrous, foundries, etc.), we leverage our skills and innovative technologies to provide safe, reliable, and competitive gas-supply solutions by supplying in bulk, cylinders or on-site product units according to the volume of consumption and operations requirements.

The industry requires oxygen, nitrogen, and argon, for applications from oxygen enrichment for blast furnaces to surface protection and degasification.

  • Steel: for melting, metal transfer, and reheating operations
  • Non-ferrous metals: for melting and metal transfer with refiners and smelters
  • Foundries: for melting with cupolas and rotary furnaces and for metal transfer
  • Semi-finished products: for reheating furnaces and heat treatment, with protective atmospheres for galvanizing and annealing

Glass

Glass industry will witness strong growth in Egypt in the coming years, in the light of domestic economic expansion, as well as growth in exports. Moreover, conservation efforts and concerns about the environment and natural resources have had a significant impact on the glass manufacturing. Air Liquide Egypt provides glass manufacturers with solutions to improve their competitiveness and environmental footprint.

In today’s glass-production processes, energy consumption and gas emissions present major obstacles to sustainability and productivity. Industrial gas plays a major role for the glass industry, enabling manufacturers to make significant savings, enhancing  production processes, meeting increasingly strict emissions regulations and improving glass quality throughout the production process, especially the melting phase. The demand for glass is still on the rise due to population and infrastructure growth.

Air Liquide provides solutions along all stages of the glass production process, from melting to forming end products.

We provide comprehensive gas solutions during all stages of the glass production, from melting to forming end products. Furthermore, our solutions are customized for all subsectors of the industry, from tableware and flat glass to technical glass such as fiberglass or solar panels. We alsodeliver a competitive oxygen supply adapted to the needs of our customers, particularly through energy-efficient on-site oxygen generation systems.

We provide glass manufacturers with solutions to improve their competitiveness and environmental footprint.

Glass Melting

Before glass can even be formed, raw materials (mainly sand) and recycled glass must be melted at extremely high temperatures (1,400°C). To achieve the heat intensity required in the glass furnaces, Air Liquide steps in with oxy-combustion technologies that replace air with oxygen, thus improving the melting process, reducing air pollutant emissions and saving energy. Air Liquide also provides the nitrogen-hydrogen mixture required to maintain the furnace temperature, as well as nitrogen which is required to avoid the presence of glass bubbles.

Glass Polishing

Before a finished product can be packaged and put on the market, defaults must be removed. Air Liquide Egypt supplies oxy-natural based gas and oxy-hydrogen based combustion technologies to polish the product surface and remove the defaults present in glass.

Fiberglass

Fiber glass producers are constantly challenged to improve the furnace's pull rates while reducing production costs and optimizing product quality. Our role is to provide high amount of oxygen that helps in furnace heating to quick raw material melting

Chemicals & Petrochemicals

The petrochemical industry is considered as one of the fastest growing industries in Egypt, where industrial gases such as oxygen, hydrogen and carbon monoxide are essential molecules. They are required as reactants for various processes and steps in the chemical production chain. Nitrogen, used for inerting, purging and cooling and other specific applications, is also a key component of our offer.

Additionally, we can deliver steam and power for utilities, as well as specialty gases for research centers, process and quality control.

We deliver competitive offers with high availability rates using latest technologies with major chemical and petrochemical customers in Egypt.

Air Liquide also owns and operates two sites in Egypt to serve the chemical industry’ requirements:

  • AL supplying GOX and GAN for Petrochemical plant producing PVC (Poly vinyl chloride)
  • AL supplying GAN for Petrochemical plant producing LAB (Linear Alkyl Benzene)

Through various applications, we are permanently assisting our customers in their day-to-day operations, providing them with reliability, efficiency and cost-effective solutions.

Beverage

The beverage industry, one of the biggest in Egypt, has generated an increasing demand for carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon dioxide can be liquefied into a heavy, volatile, colorless liquid. We provide our customers with both gaseous and liquid carbon dioxide. Our products are in compliance with HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) and ISO 22000 in order to meet the most rigorous health and safety standards.

The function of carbon dioxide in beverages is to provide effervescence, acidity and protection against microbiological growth without contributing to any off-appearances, off-odor, off-taste, or undesirable levels of trace impurities. Thus, carbon dioxide must undergo effective purification to be considered suitable for its intended use as a direct food additive in beverages, especially for carbonated soft drinks and soda water. Liquid carbon dioxide is also required in the manufacturing of Dry Ice.

Main applications in the beverage industry:

  • Carbonated drinks is what occurs when carbon dioxide gas is added to a water based liquid; it reacts chemically with the water molecules to form a carbonic acid and this is called the carbonation process.
  • Still drinks: a tiny drop of liquid nitrogen preserves still beverage quality
  • Wines and spirits with temperature control process
